West Hollywood is a diverse, vibrant and progressive community located in the heart of the Los Angeles region. It is home to many world-renowned places including the Sunset Strip, the Avenue of Arts and Design and the Pacific Design Center.

The new general plan focuses on maintaining the community’s unique character while providing a design and planning vision for change areas of the City primarily along Santa Monica and Sunset Boulevards. General Plan policies created a framework for preserving West Hollywood’s values of diversity, inclusivity, and environmental responsibility while promoting new investment and improved public space in key locations.
